Any chance we could get links, so that we can see the complete listing for any specific league?

It's just me or we have a lot more attack against camps in the Rift, compared to 1-2 attacks on Standing Stones ? If this is the case I have to say people with cities nearby the Rift have huge advantage...

Maybe so.  But are there more than 1-2 attacks on any single space, or are there just a bunch of moving undead because there are so many different squares?

Rill,

Honestly, I can't think of an entertaining or informative approach to commentary on this tourney.  In many respects, this tourney is similar to the critter-killing tourney (#2) and I was stumped as to how to comment in an entertaining and informative manner on that one, too.   We can all see the daily standings for the top 10 of each group.  And essentially, this is a very passive tourney - set out an army and wait for it to get hit.  Replenish the army with troops when it is nearly depleted.

There might be some exciting developments if players start smashing competitors' armies - but only the 2 players involved would know that so they would need to report that to us.  However, except for the top 10, no one knows who to smash in their own league - say if #20 wants to slow down #19 - #20 doesn't know who #19 is so there is nothing to be done except wait for the zombie slot machine to generate a hit for #20.

Best of luck, Rill.

I believe this tourney will be different in many aspects. Too early to predict something.

If undead numbers don't increase alot then I agree with TD - it will be an activity test like tourny #2.

I think I read that undead strength will increase... question will be to what extent.

To continue that question, would the undead armies be limited in number/growth rate depending on the League the defending player is in? Or is it more of..by the end of the month, only the big players have enough troops to defend?

The fact that we can--indeed must--sit and wait for them to come to us is a huge difference from the click-fest of the previous tournament.  I can't think of a good strategy that requires being online more than twice a day.

Ryelle could scout the rift daily to report goings-on there, but I don't know if that would be appreciated by people who are parked on the Rift.  (Including, for while she holds out, Ryelle.)  Anyone have thoughts?
